A one-size-fits-all approach to innovation leadership doesn’t create a sustainable culture of innovation. Trying to run the business while also trying to do innovation is difficult. Driving successful innovation through your organization is tougher than crafting the new concept. What’s required to make innovation repeatable is a differentiated set of competencies at each level of leadership in the organization. This session will focus on the skills needed to drive innovation, whether you’re a sole contributor, the CEO or anything in between.
This webinar will focus on the following:
- Required innovation capabilities based on your level in the organization
- Tools and techniques to apply immediately
Skills to be acquired:
- How to evaluate ideas productively in order to not kill the “next big thing” because it looks strange to make sure you’re using the right mindset
- How to frame and re-frame a problem to ensure you’re focusing your organization’s efforts in the right area.
